Rick Ross assassination attempt might have links to Gangster Disciples
Jan-30-2013 353 0


There is no shortage of suspects in Monday's assassination attempt on well-known rap star Rick Ross. And they all lead back to Chicago.

Ross survived a shooting ambush in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Monday morning.

The worst kept secret in the rap world has been a dispute between Ross and the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples. Ross was apparently targeted by gang leaders after he used some of their signs, symbols and logos without paying them the required fees.

Over the past few months, gang members have posted video death threats against the rapper on YouTube. Monday, a hit squad opened fire on Ross in South Florida.

There was a spray of gunfire just before daybreak on the silver Rolls Royce being driven by rapper Rick Ross, stage name for William L. Roberts.

"Nine or 10 shots, rapid fire," said a witness. "AK-47 or pretty large rifle, it was definitely a rifle."

Fort Lauderdale police tell the I-Team that they cannot confirm nor dismiss whether the allege threats to the rap star are legitimate but that detectives are examining the forensic evidence.

Despite all the bullets, rapper Ross, celebrating his 37th birthday Monday, was not hurt and neither was his girlfriend in the car, which crashed into an apartment.

Videos claiming to have been posted by Gangster Disciple members in cities across the U.S. all say that the rapper needs to pay the gang or he will be killed.

Authorities in South Florida say the motive for the attack is unclear.

The Django Unchained actress who claimed racial profiling by police last month has been charged with lewd conduct, according to TMZ, which broke the story initially.

Daniele Watts and her boyfriend Brian James Lucas were each reportedly charged with lewd conduct, a misdemeanor conduct charge that could result in six months in county jail and a $1,000 fine.

The couple were stopped after eyewitnesses called the Los Angeles Police Department complaining of a couple having sex in public during daylight. They claimed they were apprehended because Watts is black and Lucas is white, garnering national news attention until a recording of the incident was leaked to TMZ.

The City Attorney's office could not immediately be reached for comment.

Model and former "American Idol" contestant Joanne Borgella died early Saturday morning of complications stemming from cancer.

The 32-year-old singer, a resident of Hoboken, N.J., publicly struggled with a rare case of cancer of the womb after being diagnosed last year, and died at 5:45 a.m., according to a statement shared by Borgella’s family on Facebook.

“Her faith, courage and strength were unshaken throughout every obstacle she encountered. Although our family is suffering with this great loss, we find comfort in the closeness Joanne shared with the Lord,” the statement read.

Borgella kept her fans apprised of her fight with endometrial cancer, which affects the inner lining of the uterus, but it later spread to her chest. The last update regarding her medical progress was shared on Sept. 23 when Borgella said she was undergoing two radiation procedures.

She auditioned for "American Idol" in 2008, but was eliminated in the first week of the seventh season after performing Dionne Warwick’s “I Say a Little Prayer.”

The native of Long Island also pursued a plus-sized modeling career after winning Mo’Nique’s Fat Chance, a beauty pageant show on Oxygen, in 2005.

Police say rapper Waka Flocka Flame was arrested after a handgun was found in his carry-on bag during a security scan at Atlanta's airport.

Atlanta police say the 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is Juaquin James Malphurs, didn't have a weapons permit. He was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.

He was being held in the Clayton County jail. An initial court appearance was set for Saturday morning. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Mark Howell said agents have found about 1,600 guns so far this year in bags at airport security checkpoints nationwide.

In addition to any criminal penalties, Howell says the TSA can impose a fine of up to $11,000 depending on the infraction.

A former law firm for the Wayans brothers thinks there’s nothing funny about their unpaid legal bills.

S&E Azriliant says in documents filed in Manhattan Supreme Court that Shawn and Keenen Ivory Wayans owe more than $60,000 for services starting in 2005.

The duo known for slapstick comedies like “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka” and “White Chicks” used the Midtown firm for managing taxes and creation of corporations, according to documents.

The firm says the funnymen have dodged payment since 2008 and asks a judge to force them to cough up the cash, plus interest.

Tracy Morgan isn’t amused that Wal-Mart is blaming him for the injuries he suffered when one of their truck drivers smashed into him on the New Jersey Turnpike — injuries that may have ended his stand-up career, his lawyer said Tuesday.

“He’s very upset,” Benedict Morelli told the Daily News of his client’s reaction to Wal-Mart’s blame-the-victims defense.

“He's struggling every day, fighting hard just to get incrementally better, and they hit him with this.”

In a statement, the funny man said, “After I heard what Wal-Mart said in court I felt I had to speak out. I can't believe Wal-Mart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong.”

In court filings Monday, the retail giant said injuries suffered by Morgan and his fellow passengers, Jeffrey Millea and Ardley Fuqua, “if any, were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs’ failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt device.”

The lawyer called Wal-Mart's arguments responding to the negligence suit he filed on behalf of the victims “callous” and “disingenuous.”

He noted that Morgan’s limousine bus was “at a dead stop” because of road work on June 7 when “it was hit in the rear by a tractor trailer going 65 miles per hour.”

“The driver never braked, never swerved,” Morelli said, and smashed straight into the limo, killing Morgan’s comedian pal James (Jimmy Mack) McNair, and severely injuring Morgan, Millea and Fuqua.

The driver, Kevin Roper, has been charged with vehicular homicide and assault by auto.

“It wasn’t the seatbelts,” Morelli said.

He noted the police report said seatbelts weren't an issue in the case — and that none of the occupants can remember if they were wearing them or not.

Morgan, Millea and Fuqua all suffered traumatic brain injuries in the crash, and don’t remember it, the Morelli, Alters, Ratner lawyer said.

He said all three need to undergo more surgeries, and undergo hours of rehab treatment every day.

Their treatments include speech therapy and cognitive therapy, the lawyer said.

“They're trying to get their brains to work the way they worked before the accident,” Morelli said.

The limousine bus carrying Tracy Morgan and six other people lies on its side early June 7 on the New Jersey Turnpike.

He said it's unclear whether Morgan, 45, will be able to resume his stand-up career.

“He's been offered his own show, a movie — he can't do any of those things” right now, he said.

“He spends hours and hours a day in rehab, struggling and fighting to get better,” Morelli said.

“It can't even be assessed, what the outcome is going to be.”

He noted that both Morgan and Fuqua are standup comics. “They need to be razor sharp. They need to think on their feet. They need to be so right on the edge.”

Asked if the “30 Rock” star would ever be able to get back on stage, he said, “I don’t know the answer.”

Also galling to Morelli was Wal-Mart’s refusal to admit to even basic information in their response to the victims’ lawsuit.

“They won’t admit the driver works for them or that he’s a truck driver,” Morelli said, accusing the company of talking out of both sides of its mouth.

“They say publicly if we were involved in this accident we will take full responsibility and then they won't even admit Roper's their driver. . . It’s despicable.”

“They know they caused this accident,” Morelli said, and they should pay for it — big time.

“They want to play hardball? I invented it,” Morelli said. “Bring it.”

In the meantime, Morelli said, Morgan will continue to “fight” through his injuries — which also included broken ribs and a broken leg — to reclaim his life.

He said the former “Saturday Night Live” star has been getting psychiatric help to deal with the trauma of the accident, which he blames himself for.

“He’s so upset. One of his friends died in the accident. He hasn’t gotten over that,” Morelli said.

“Jeff was his assistant. Artie was his opening act. They were there because of him. He feels responsible for these people,” which is one reason why Wal-Mart’s legal tactic hit him so hard.

And while the comic, who Morelli spoke to on Monday, is “emotionally very upset” with the big box retailer, he’s been very moved by the outpouring of support for him in the months since the accident.

“Tracy loves the fact everyone cares about him so much,” Morelli said.

In his statement, Morgan said, “I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I'm fighting hard every day to get back.”

A Wal-Mart spokeswoman said the company “is committed to working to resolve all of the remaining issues as a result of the accident.

“As part of the ordinary course of legal proceedings, Wal-Mart filed an initial response yesterday to the lawsuit that included facts and defenses that may impact the case moving forward," said spokeswoman Brooke Buchanan. "While we were required to respond to the lawsuit, we have also taken steps to encourage settlement discussions. Our thoughts continue to go out to everyone involved, and we remain committed to doing what's right."

The star of CBS' "Thursday Night Football" introduction song, Rihanna, is actually quite furious about her scheduled debut.

NFL Network and CBS had planned to debut the package with Jay-Z's "Run This Town" featuring Rihanna before the Ravens-Steelers contest on Sept. 11, but in the immediate wake of TMZ's release of video showing Ray Rice punch his then-fiancee Janay, CBS decided to pull it in favor of a "subdued" tone and journalistic approach, according to CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus.

McManus acknowledged that the decision to nix Rihanna's intro last week was motivated at least in part by the fact that the Grammy award winning singer was herself a victim of domestic violence in 2009 at the hands of her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

Per an NFL press release, CBS had planned to customize its opening each week highighting the teams and storylines.

This Thursday night, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will visit the Atlanta Falcons. We'll update if CBS addresses its plans for the introduction.

UPDATE: According to New York Times television reporter Bill Carter, CBS won't show her intro this week, either.
